Regular Events

Kayoubikai

Kayoubikai (火曜日会)is our monthly outing to a local Japanese restaurant.  Held on the second Tuesday of every month, Kayoubikai is an opportunity to meet new friends with similar interests, practice Japanese, and stay connected with other JASA members. While membership is not mandatory to attend the event, we encourage registering for individual membership to support JASA  and stay involved with our events!

January's Kayoubikai will be held at the Samuel Ullman Museum (2150 15th Ave S Birmingham, AL 35205) on January 8, 2019 at 6:30pm. We will be trying a new format for this event, so please purchase a ticket here!  


Cherry Blossom Festival

Each year, we celebrate with food, crafts, performances, and other activities at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens’ Japanese Garden to welcome the Spring. Join us in March 2018 for hanami (flower viewing) in Birmingham! Cherry Blossoms, or sakura (桜、さくら), only bloom for a few weeks each year.  In Japanese culture, sakura represent mortality and remind viewers of the beauty and transience of life. Thousands of people flock to parks in Japan to see the blossoms. Come see our Birmingham cherry trees while they are in bloom!

Our next Cherry Blossom Festival will be held at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens on March 16, 2018! We hope to see you there!

Annual Dinner

Each year, the Japan-America Society of Alabama hosts a special reception and fundraiser to allow our members and guests from all over Alabama to gather, network, and dine with a special program to celebrate the JASA community. Our 2019 Annual Dinner will be held on August 22, 2018! Following last year’s highly successful event, we are moving to a larger venue at The Club in Birmingham, AL. View photos of the event here.
